perspective. we've assembled experts from europe, middle east, and asia to tell us how the rest of the world sees this election. then i have a panel of distinguished historians, walter isa isaacson, sean wilentz and edmund morris to look at an eye to the past. what do past campaigns and past presidents tell us about this nail-biter? also americans might be anxious to learn tuesday's results of the chinese are even more anxious, perhaps, to learn who their new leaders will be, why they might have more at stake than we do. but first here's my take. whoever wins the election on tuesday, on wednesday either barack obama or mitt romney will have to start worrying about the same urgent challenge, how to stop the united states from falling over the fiscal cliff. this is, of course, the second cliff hanger that the united states has faced in two years, the first being the debt ceiling debacle. how did the world's greatest democracy start functioning so badly? maybe the next president can try to fix this broader problem. but first the fiscal cliff. unless congress act, the spending cuts and tack incr

on us to be there every step of the way. >>> mitt romney ended his day yesterday in colorado at the rally in englewood. he had an admission about day one of a romney presidency. >> when i'm elected, the economy and american jobs will still be stagnant, of course, but i won't waste any time complaining about my predecessor. from day one i'm going to go to work to help americans get back to work. >> another big named endorsement for the president. he's now got the support of israel's oldest newspaper. they say obama is good for israel. quote, the outcome of the elections will be determined by the voter's decision as to which of the two candidates are better for america. but if any of them are vacillating whether hob has been a good president for israel, the answer is question. kind words by a big paper but the endorsement is expected to have little effect on the voters here. >> the u.s. >>> and in president obama's sprint to head a toss-up uks he made a stop in wisconsin where he urged supporters to stick with him even if they sometimes have a difference of opinion. >> you may
, not that person. we are going to contact them over and over again until we get them out to vote. using data was migrated into the obama campaign. we are going to be in a video game. we are in your video game and there's an obama ad. we are going find where you live like coca-cola targets you. it's survived tharks model. >> it's very important. obama seems to have mastered this whole thing. the microtargeting, the sophisticated analysis, there's a little thing called the voters and things called issues and how you get voters energized in your candidacy and in your platform. i think we lose a great deal of that in when we start talking so much about what is it going to take -- >> wait. defend that. defend that. >> i'll second the motion. >> i'm going to argue both of you. >> i'll second the motion. it's become a science, this microtargeting of voters. you lose sight of the people, lose sight of the issues on the ground. however, if you have field offices in all the communities, counties in ohio, you are trying to engage people on the ground. it's better than the air war, which republicans rel

his life. >> and then there was mitt's mother lenore. >> my mom had a softer side. she used to read to me when i was a boy and gave me a love of culture and literature. >> once a screen actress, lenore met george in 1924. their courtship became an often told part of the family story. >> he left what he was doing and traveled west to hollywood to convince her to marry him as opposed to going into the movie business. he knew what he wanted and was not going to stop until he got it. >> mitt's courtship of ann was, in its own way, no less intense. they were just teenagers at neighboring elite private schools in detroit. it was mitt's senior year when he spotted the 16-year-old ann davies at a dance. >> i did fall madly in love with him very quickly. actually. but i was very aloof, very cool. >> she was very smart. she set the hook deep. and i'd call and say, let's get together. she was too busy. she went on a date with someone else while i was pursuing her. made me just crazy. >> he was so much fun. captivating. it was just fun, fun, fun to be with him. >> there are lots of stories of g
's actually using some scientific social science methods to make predictions and most predictions that pundits make are not based on social science. >> the dangers are that it overtakes the coverage. i think that's dangerous so close to the election because everyone's asking the horse race collection. who's going win. what's he doing on the economy? those questions belonged to the debates and a lot earlier. it's all about who shows up and where the numbers come from no. >> the way the storm took over this past week and we saw the pictures of barack obama and chris christie. so much ink and air time was devoted to that it was like cat nip. >> number two, it's so rare for a republican, especially someone like chris christie who has spent the campaign as a partisan romney supporter. it's so rare for a republican to say anything nice about a democrat or vice versa, that that's major, major news. when someone steps into a leadership role and says something is bigger than politics. >> underlying it it seems to me there's a certain cynicism which is chris christie couldn't possibly be sincere in thin

[ female announcer ] one cap of tide gives you more cleaning power than 6 caps of the bargain bran
. that's in cleveland, ohio. he told supporters a slogan used by the president four years ago better applies to him this time around. >> if you believe we can do better, if you believe america should be on a better course or if you're tired of being tired, then i ask you to vote for real change. paul ryan and i will bring real change to america from day one. when i'm elected, the economy and american jobs will still be stagnant, but i won't waste any time complaining about my predecessor. >> so that was cleveland, ohio. but mitt romney is now in pennsylvania. i told you they were busy. he wraps up the day with an appearance in newport news, virginia. very busy schedule. and that's president obama arriving a little while ago in south florida. he took issue with his opponent's promise of, quote, real change. listen. >> here's the thing, florida. we know what change looks like. what governor romney is offering ain't it. giving more power back to the biggest banks, that's not change. another $5 trillion tax cuts for the wealthy, that's not change. refusing to answer questions about the d
that is led us into the ditch. it's been a hard fought four years to finally get to 171,000 jobs gain. to get retail sales moving better than expected. home prices and home construction are moving faster in the right direction. the engine for economic growth is happening, and i think people in pennsylvania, ohio, michigan, wisconsin, rust belt, middle of america, know that the press's policies are finally starting to pay off, and this is not the time to stop on them. they need to press forward on the policies -- >> if they bought into that, then why have these polls slipped in pennsylvania, do you think? >> well, look, from that poll i don't know -- i've seen other polls that have the president in a comfortable margin on particulars, but it comes down to a four-letter word, my favorite one, jobs. the president's policies are actually producing the types of jobs and economic growth. not at the pace he wants and the policies he has for going forward. it's about building on the middle class and not short-chasing them like mitt romney would do. they can own a home and have a good job, save for th
much up for grabs. joining us from bluemont, virginia. virginia jones, what is on the minds of people there in virginia other than that pumpkin smashing you have been seeing all day at great country farms? >> that's right, fredericka, we have been here watching people do this. they call it pumpkin chunking, it's a place to come to bring your jack-o-lantern when you're through with it. virginia went for barack obama back in 2008. the margin of victory was a little more than eight points, versus a little more than six points for the entire state. we have been talking to people here all day, not all of them have been louden county, a pretty good cross section. listen to what 2w0 of them had to say. >> i'll be supporting president obama, i believe he stands for women's rights, for children's rights for everyone's rights more than people who represent the top 1%. >> i was -- had high hopes for obama, but he just hasn't fulfilled them so i think it's time for a change and romney is that kind of manager, organizer that can do the job. >> reporter: and i'll tell you one thing i asked both of
